set switch

I'm hearing in other Africa Twin forums that Honda is providing replacement parts for faulty set switches. It's not a recall, and owners need to ask their dealer about it.

I have not had any problems yet, but it is on my list to keep an eye on.

I'm not seeing quite so much of this appearing lately on other forums. Anyone had problems with the set switch on 2017 models?   I'm wondering if Honda have modified the switches at source and the newer ones are being installed on 2017 units.

2017 models have been changed , difficult to explain in English, but they have make more space between contacts , not to have electric arc. The problem (on some bikes,) is difficulty to start the bike .
Dealer says he change mine (preventively) on next 24 000 service .

Thanks!  Pretty sure Honda will sort out most of the initial issues.

Thanks for the update!

Out of interest.  When was the current (Stuck) set button last installed?

Current installation was done before the updated part, I think it got stuck in Winterberg rain :D

Switch changed during 24000 km service; haven't time to see it, but some difficulties to start the bike these last times ...

I have now two changed. Later one is supposed to be improved version.

It happens if you ride or park your bike in rain. But in Nordic countries I had no problem, one rainy day in France and it got jammed. Must be the toxic rain?

I've ridden in the rain quite a bit on my AT, our rain must be clean. Auckland rain (where my friend lives) must be like France's  ;D
